“A work dominated by passions and blood.” - New York Times
The emotionally fragile Lucia is driven to madness when manipulated to marry a man she does not love. Featuring the most famous mad scene in the repertory and full of ravishingly beautiful melodies, this timeless bel canto masterpiece evokes the passion and desperation of a woman used by her brother as a political pawn. Soprano superstar Natalie Dessay owns this virtuosic role alongside tenor Giuseppe Filianoti, baritone Gabriele Viviani, and bass Oren Gradus. Recorded in summer 2008 and sung in Italian with English subtitles.Artist Website Video Photos
